Panettone Leftovers Breakfast Bake : releasing inviting Italian flavours to easily start the day !
I really enjoy cooking and baking. It runs in my family for years. My grandmother was known to bake wedding cakes for every couple nearby. She did it with such an ease, smoothly and by heart. She knew all the recipes and needed no notebook.
Luckily, she was wise to write them all down for future chefs to come so my mother and I could still enjoy those vintage perfect combinations of simple ingredients. So happens with panettone. She used to make it at the drop of a hat but somehow I am totally untalented to make it. This is why I buy ready made ones for Christmas and really could not complain about the taste; there are so many different kinds and shapes and fillings that we enjoy !
If you have any panettone leftovers or one originally wrapped one in your pantry after holidays , just make this Panettone Leftovers Breakfast Bake. If you do not have forest fruits at hand, use any other fruits (frozen or fresh) ; even jam or Nutella is all right. Just spread it over the slices soaked with dressing and continue with step five.
